The BeePort – XXL 3D Printed Bee Feeder

Description

Yes, it was a case of ‘Go Big or Go Home’…

People seem to love the BeePod, the BeeBar and my other bee-feeding units. They’ve been shipped to the US, UK, Australia, Russia, Singapore, and so many other places, so there’s obviously a lot of you lovely people out there who like to take care of our buzzy little friends! In continuing to collaborate with Joanna of We Love Our Bees! in Florida I realised that a much bigger unit was needed for people who have a LOT of bees to take care of. It was time, it seemed, for The BeePort.

This latest addition to my Wildlife-Care range combines all the others in one way or another. There’s a pool in the base which can be filled with water, so the bees can drink (while standing on the little islands so they don’t get their wings wet). There’s the little cups for nectar, honey, sugar-water, so honeybees can stop to fill up on that sweet, sweet sugar-hit, and if you’re catering for Orchid Bees the little cups can also contain clove oil; I’ve printed the inner helix in PLA, so it’ll be safe to use with clove-oil. The whole thing can be hung from a special detachable locking hanger unit, or it can be sited on a table with its own special mounting collar. The whole thing is put together with a locking-collar at its equator, holding the two tough hull sections together while still having large, airy holes to let the bees fly in! Hence why I called it The BeePort; it’s like an international airport… for bees!

Your BeePort will be delivered with all the components ready for use, but none of it will be glued together; this will make it able to be fully disassembled for cleaning. If you’d prefer that I DO glue it together please send me a message to let me know. It can also be printed in different colours if you like! Originally the inner cup-helix was going to be white or blue, but experimentation seems to show that bees are more attracted to yellow.

Order yours and open your very own bee-airport today!

Diameter (widest point, across Locking Collar): 165.5mm
Height (with Hanger Unit attached): 208mm
Height (without Hanger Unit): 168mm

    I actually got this for a friend of mine who is super wealthy, has all the jewelry she could ever want – and I didn’t know what to get her for Christmas – she also loves bees and when I gave her these earrings, she was absolutely THRILLED! They’re fun, bright – well made – and she wore these to a fancy Christmas party and got LOTS of great comments!!!!! I have a pair myself and am always getting great fun comments – they are just too cute for words!!!!! Great gifts for the bee lovers in your life – you can get regular honey bees or green orchid bee earrings – love love love them! Shipping was quick, but took a while to get here over Christmas (mail delays) but Trevor was very helpful and quick email responses. Great experience. Will buy more from you.

    I live in Florida, and we get beautiful, shy green orchid bees – the males love clove oil, so I put clove oil on cotton balls, put it in the bee pod, and the little dudes come right away – rub the oil on the legs so it attracts the ladies! The bee pod is easy to take apart to put more clove oil in there – and several openings mean several orchid bees can come at the same time – it’s the most ingenious design – LOVE LOVE LOVE IT. You have made me and many male orchid bees very happy. The design is really cool, this little sphere hanging from our deck shade, so it looks cool as well as being very functional for the orchid bees. Trevor was super responsive to a question I had about shipping, great customer service, will be back. Thank you!

    Outstanding customer service – the Bee Feeder is amazing, I put some cotton balls soaked with clove oil (must be food grade) and the male orchid bees flock to it – I like this design because of the canopy, protects the base from rain – will be ordering more. Trevor is very responsive to email inquiries (was a slight delay with mail over Christmas) – buy with confidence from him, I have bought quite a few things and he’s one of the best sellers out there. LOVE the bee feeder and the color is awesome!
